and paul ryan! and we need them right now. >> political analysts are confused. romney surrogate, fox and friends, tried to get christie to dial it back. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea, nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. i've got a job to do here in new jersey. it's much bigger than presidential politics and i could care less about any of that stuff. i have a job to do. i've got 2.4 million people out of power. i've got devastation on the shore. i've got floods in the northern part of my state. if you think right now i give a damn about presidential politics, then you don't know me. >> talk about a smackdown. yet despite christie -- some can't help but wonder will christie's newfound love for president obama tilt the election obama's way? talkback question for you, will sandy change the election? facebook.com/carolcnn. your responses later this hour. >>> hundreds are rescued in a northern new jersey town. we'll tell you how the city plans to rescue others who are still stranded t
nonstop. vice president is in colorado and paul ryan is holding rallies in pennsylvania, virginia, florida, and ohio. so ohio indeed could be the biggest battleground of the election. the race there is very tight. a just released cnn/orc poll shows obama ahead by just three points, well within the margin of error. an nbc/"wall street journal" poll shows a wider gap with obama leading by six points. president obama is about to speak at a rally in mentor, ohio. he is at least in the building, we understand. and so is our white house correspond dan loathian. the president's schedule is packed today. he isn't just campaigning. he is also keeping a close watch on the storm which he says really is his first priority. >> reporter: that's correct. white house officials saying that president did get updates, briefings overnight. this morning he went to fema headquarters in washington to get a briefing in person, to get a sense of what is taking place with regards to the flooding, the power situation. he had some of his top officials in the room with him. he also spoke via video conference with the
campaign near englewood, colorado. so, jim, seven states tharks is one busy day for romney and ryan. did they generate any momentum today; do you think? >> we're going to have to wait and see, don. if you look at those battleground state polls that have come out in recent days, it doesn't appear that that surge of momentum may have stalled with the arrival of super storm sandy. we'll just have to wait and see on election day, don. if you wait and look at all of these battleground states, it is very cloesz when it comes to the president and mitt romney. we are leaving now and on our way to a rally in englewood, colorado. it will be his final stop here in this battleground state. and, also, john, his final western stop of campaign 2012. we've been hearing him talk nostalgically all day long. he was talking about the long days and the short nights and how his campaign is almost there. it's almost until election day. but really, what he's been doing is delivering his closing argument. talking about what he calls real change for the country. he's been seizing that unemployment data saying tha
. along with the economy. democrats have tried to link republicans to paul ryan's plans to turn medicare into a voucher program, something democrats say would be disastrous for seniors. republicans believe they have neutralized that message by arguing obama care hurts seniors by slashing medicare. redistricting will have a big impact, helping republicans. >> for the most part, republicans because they made such overwhelming gains not only in congress but in state legislatures last year, they were able to control the redistricting process in a lot of key states. for example, north carolina, where democrats will probably lose a couple seats this cycle. >> gop gains look likely in districts from north carolina to arkansas, among others. in fact, party operatives say they even put traditional blue states like rhode island and massachusetts into play. democrats are trying hard to unseat gop incumbents in blue states like california, new york, and illinois. and could see gains in maryland and florida. so why do these house races matter? members of congress will have to make big decisions in th
of congressman ryan, and that would be governor romney's running mate. so maybe defying conventional wisdom, wisconsin is leaning fairly heavily in president obama's favor. >> reporter: that's right. now, paul ryan has been seen as an asset, obviously, to governor romney and he has been making a whole lot of appearances. i'll tell you, the crowd behind me is getting excited, ashleigh, because air force one is taxing over towards us where president obama is going to be coming out shortly and making his remarks. yes, paul ryan has been an asset to governor romney. it's why some are saying the race here has been pretty tight, although there is a small lead, a consistent lead, for president obama. today we saw "wall street journ journal" nbc news poll, three points up the president is here in wisconsin. yesterday there was a poll in milwaukee, a marquette university poll that had the president up by much more, eight points. you talk to the obama campaign, they'll point to that marquette poll and they'll say it's more accurate. it seems likie internal polls ae in between the two. the bottom line
mentioned wisconsin is the home state of his running mate paul ryan -- >> let me jump in, jim, because over your shoulder governor scott walker introducing mitt romney gave the roaring crowd what they wanted, and that was mitt romney who has just come out the greet some of the supporters behind him, and he is going to take to the lectern at any moment, and remind the viewers that at the very front of the auditorium there is a sign that says "jobs" and you can bet your bottom dollar that my colleague christine romans just mentioned he will be talk tact jobs talking about the jobs report when he has a chance to address the crowd. let's listen in. >> you guys are amazing. thank you so much. what a welcome. thank you. that is a very generous welcome. thank you. [ crowd chanting "four more days" ] >> thank you so much. you got that one right. you have that absolutely right. four more days. this is a -- wow, a great experience to be here with you today. this is so exciting. what a great state. what a great welcome and by the way, this state is going to help me to become the next president of the
over mitt romney in this latest poll, which is why mitt romney and paul ryan are stu stumping there today after modifying their plans. they were going to be in virginia, but because of the storm now they're in ohio. as you see here, the two rally supporters just a short time ago in salina, ohio. they have both spent several days in the buckeye state and have more on their calendar. let's talk a little more about the direction of that state and the voting electrorate has your own new polling out this morning showing a dead heat there. obama and romney both pulling 49% of support out of likely voters. this is in line with that tightening national race according to a number of major polls. so why is, or is it your view, that ohio is kind of the microcosm of the country? >> ohio is, indeed, fredricka. it always is. it's tied this time, but if you were to compare, let's say, texas or utah with new york and put them all in one state, you would have ohio. >> so the president has traveled to that state at least 24 times, mitt romney somewhere more than 40 times this year alone. both o

the couple i'm about to talk to had to get out on their own. on the phone with me now is ryan and girlfriend catherine. both of you, we're looking at a picture of here. i'm sure you're glad to be okay right now. but ryan, i know you're the one, you live in hoboken. can you first before you talk about how you got out, describe the floods and the smell. >> the water came about four or four and a half feet but it filled about 30 minutes before it reached that level. it was pretty -- it was pretty quick for the most part. i was just surprised at how fast it came. >> how fast? >> i'm sorry? >> how fast? >> within 20, 30 minutes there was about 3 1/2, 4 feet of water out in the street. luckily, you know, we were on a third floor apartment. so we just watched it but, you know, i've seen -- i've lived in hoboken for three years. it's rained, i saw pieces of irene and it was nothing compared to how quick the water came up. it was just like a basically wave that filled the back streets. >> and we are looking at the pictures, some of the video i know from our affiliates. catheri catherine, you sent us
convention, right? and this is what he's doing. what would be nice for either paul ryan or mitt romney or some other large political figure within the republican party is to just do what barbara walters did which is to say, dude, stop it. you're embarrassing us, you're embarrassing the conversation, you're embarrassing the country and you need to stop it. instead, they're silenced. that silence bothers me. to me, it suggests that, it makes us uncomfortable but if it can get us votes, keep him around. people like him and ann coulter, we need to say, you need to go away because you're not part of the future that we want. >> we're going to have another segment on this and other outlandish things being said on the campaign trail. do you think more republicans should come out and say, please stop this, it's not productive? what do you think? >> i think the worst thing we could do for donald trump is not talk about him. i think that's what would hurt him the most. he was trying to help with mitt romney that, i don't think he achieved that. if he offers $5 million to charity and to self-depor

romney in wisconsin and congressman ryan in melbourne, and lakeland, florida. we are also cancelling all events currently scheduled for both governor romney and congressman ryan on tuesday. governor romney believes this is a time for the nation and its leaders to come together to focus on those americans who are in harm's way. we will provide additional details regarding their schedules when they are available. so at this point right now, suzanne, the state of the campaign, president obama was supposed to hold a rally this morning in florida. he did not attend. he came back to washington. governor romney is participating in some campaign events as we speak, but this evening he will not be -- will he cancel his events later this evening. there will be no events tomorrow, suzanne, so, yes, eight days before the election, this sandy has thrown a big wrench to the campaign. >> is there any sense from the obama campaign that this really allows the president to do something that mitt romney can't do, which is look presidential to have a real test of his leadership at a time that is critical to
a campaign event here in ohio tomorrow morning after this event with paul ryan in a few minutes. and then he goes to wisconsin and iowa, two states that should be protected from hurricane sandy for the time being. but, don, i have to tell you, a lot of this is very interesting to watch because we're all sort of wondering how is this hurricane going to affect the race? which candidate will it affect more? will it affect the president because it will be taking him off the campaign trail. he won't be able to campaign quite as much. or will it make him perhaps appear more presidential because he'll be looking at storm damage and that sort of thing? the romney campaign was asked about that earlier today. they did not want to speculate but the obama campaign is also concerned about it because of how this storm could put a damper on early voting. that has according to conventional wisdom been an advantage for the president. we'll have to see how this shakes out. just in the last hour, one campaign event canceled by the president and both campaigns have said, don, they're looking -- they're working
campaigning in ohio, he and paul ryan. at all three stops there, mitt romney was talking about the stops and his prayers for people in harm's way. take a listen. >> i know that right now, some people in the country are a little nervous about a storm, about to hit the coast and our thoughts and prayers are with the people who will find themselves in harm's way. >> reporter: romney today's got an event coming up in a few minutes in ohio. then it's on to iowa and then on to wisconsin as well. but his campaign is doing stuff to help people out back on the east coast, people being affected. andrea saul said in north carolina, new hampshire, pennsylvania and virginia, we'll be collecting supplies at our victory offices to deliver local storm relief. in virginia, we are loading storm relief supplies onto the romney bus to be delivered. it's not the same as going to a fema news conference like the president is doing. but romney is trying to do his part. >> cnn's political editor, paul steinhauser, for us live, thank you very much. for more on today's campaigning and how the storm is changing tho
virginia events scheduled for sunday and he's going to campaign in ohio with his running mate, paul ryan, instead. what that means is romney was supposed to campaign in northern virginia and richmond on sunday, two big, bellwether medium markets in virginia and now he's going to be campaigning in three small towns in ohio. it shows you how the storm is impacting the schedule. the flipside is that the storm could potentially, if it's damaging, take president obama off the campaign trail as well and have him come back to d.c. for emergency purposes to be the president of the united states, which we remember is his job. so you know, we have to see how this plays out, but schedules are being adjusted now through tuesday, so far, so we'll see what happens. >> that's as it pertains to the campaigning. then, long term, there are some states, connecticut among them, that have already declared states of emergency, and there are potential scenarios if some of the states take direct hits from the hurricane, power out for days if not more than a week, then that would impact the electronic balloting

, also did that in his convention speech. but if you look at what his budget and paul ryan's budget would do, it would decimate nasa. he also had a great story about a woman with a heartwrenching story about a woman with a kid with down syndrome. guess what? if he repeals obama care, that child will be in danger, because they will no longer be able to get insurance coverage because of that preexisting condition. and single moms, yes, his heart goes out to single moms, but he also wants to take away their free preventative care and single moms need it more than anybody else some those are the policies that really don't jive with his positive words. that's what the obama campaign will point out. >> okay, care to rebut? >> look, i think most of us are still reeling from sandy. we have been. and in these last two or three days staying away from these kind of attacks. i'm not sure maria got the memo, but i did. and you know, i think that the tone that both mitt romney and president obama have taken -- as reresumed campaigning is one of offering their proposals, offering their ideas. and by the
